List BB Thunder Seawolf

Two unknown new BlackBerry models have surfaced in an XML device list and suggest the smartphone line will grow larger still in the near future, says a leak from BGR. The list mentions a device known alternately as the Seawolf or 9110 that would be a variant of the still unreleased Kickstart clamshell (the 9100) that adds GPS. Past leaks would have the device also come with a 2-megapixel camera, a native headphone jack, and the same OS upgrade as the Bold. It uses GSM and appears to be a likely candidate as a replacement or supplement for the Pearl 8110 in use at AT&T.

The list also appears to confirm the existence of the BlackBerry Thunder, also known internally as the Storm. A mention of a virtual keyboard confirms the existence of a touchscreen, while the device also supports the CDMA and GSM phone networks that have been suggested for the dual-mode smartphone. Little else is confirmed besides the existence of Bluetooth and a camera, though the phone is expected to support 3G through both EVDO and HSPA and is believed to be launching as a Verizon exclusive in the US and Vodafone in Europe.

A third unreleased device, the Aurora, appears to be part of the 8100 (Pearl) series but doesn't have any distinguishing traits beyond a camera, Bluetooth, and GSM phone service.
